WALKER, La. (AP) - Walker officials were looking for the person who abandoned 10 puppies in an ice chest near the city's animal shelter.
Shelter supervisor Mary Gray tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/131qdQV ) officials received a call about the white ice chest around 3 p.m. Tuesday from a woman who lives near the facility.
Gray says the woman opened the ice chest and found the puppies inside. Two of the puppies appeared to have suffered heat stroke.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Livingston Parish is offering a $200 reward for any information about who dumped the 10 puppies near the shelter.
